Summer Concert


10th July 2024


On 10th July, we will be performing at Christ Church, Bradford-on-Avon, in a concert featuring the music of Elgar, Fauré, Mozart, Bruckner and more. The concert will be free to attend, but donations will be welcome for our supported charity, Soundabout. Soundabout offers a wide range of music-making activities to children and young people who have learning disabilities with complex support needs. The charity runs a choir, based in Warminster, designed so that anyone can share their voice in their own way, online or in person, from signing and technology, to singing. A video featuring the charity's work can be found here
